Attention K-Mart Shoppers

Mark Davis

OK, I have to admit this this is a strange collection. In the late 1980's and early 1990's, I worked for Kmart behind the service desk and the store played specific pre-recorded cassettes issued by corporate. This was background music, or perhaps you could call it elevator music. Anyways, I saved these tapes from the trash during this period and this video shows you my extensive, odd collection.

Until around 1992, the cassettes were rotated monthly. Then, they were replaced weekly. Finally sometime around 1993, satellite programming was intoduced which eliminated the need for these tapes altogether.

The older tapes contain canned elevator music with instrumental renditions of songs. Then, the songs became completely mainstream around 1991. All of them have advertisements every few songs.

The monthly tapes are very, very, worn and rippled. That's becuase they ran for 14 hours a day, 7 days a week on auto-reverse. If you do the math assuming that each tape is 30 minutes per side, that's over 800 passes over a tape head each month.

Finally, one tape in the collection was from the Kmart 30th anniversary celebration on 3/1/92. This was a special day at the store where employees spent all night setting up for special promotions and extra excitement. It was a real fun day, the store was packed wall to wall, and I recall that the stores were asked to play the music at a much higher volume. The tape contains oldies and all sorts of fun facts from 1962. This may have been one of the last days where Kmart was in their heyday - really!

One last thing for you techies, the stores built in the early 1970's (such as Naperville, IL Ogden Mall Kmart #3066, Harwood Heights, IL #3503 and Bridgeview, IL #4381) orignally had Altec-Lansing amplifiers with high quality speakers throughout the store. When you applied a higher quality sounding source, the audio was extremely good. Later stores had cheaper speakers and eventually the amps were switched out with different ones usually lacking bass and treble controls.

This is a digitized version of an in-store cassette tape that was played within a Kmart store. This cassette was played only one day in 1992 on Kmart's 30th anniversary. I worked at Kmart between 1989 and 1999 and held onto them with the hopes that they would be of use some day.  Enjoy!

This is a digitized version of an in-store reel to reel tape that was played within a Kmart store in December 1974.  The opening Kmart jingle is interesting at the beginning of both hours, and there are theft deterrent security pages and store policy announcements between every few songs.  This must have been in attempt to discourage shoplifting. This is a Tape-Athon product perhaps in their early days - see the attached pictures.  There also was an insert within the reel to reel box...

This is a digitized version of an in-store pharmacy cassette tape that was played within a Kmart store.  The pharmacy would literally hold the paging phone up to a boombox and play these clips.  I worked at Kmart between 1989 and 1999 and held onto them with the hopes that they would be of use some day.  Enjoy!

This is a digitized version of an in-store reel to reel tape that was played within a Kmart store in May 1988.  Amazingly, Kmart continued to play reel to reels until the late 1980's when cassettes were put into production. This is a genuine Tape-A-Thon product and the recording contains both sides, which are 1.5 hours long each, totaling 3 hours. Recorded in the 3¾ speed and the tape is thin. The tape itself is in rough shape; I have reason to believe that these reels were returned at the...

This is a digitized version of an in-store looping cassette tape that was played on a portable tape deck.  We received these tapes every once in a while and the player would be moved around the store and put behind displays.  This one was for Dutch Boy paint and would have been somewhere in the paint department.  The unit that played the tape would do so every 5 minutes or something like that.  I worked at Kmart between 1989 and 1999 and held onto them with the hopes that they would be...

This is a digitized version of an in-store reel to reel tape that was played within a Kmart store in 1973.  In my opinion, the opening Kmart jingle is the most important artifact of this recording, but the music and small number of commercials make it a great listen. This company listed on the original box is Special Recordings, Inc and is out of Detroit Mi.  As Kmart was based in Michigan, this supplier was most likely somewhat nearby. The recording contains both sides, which are 1 hour long...

This is a digitized audio containing pharmacy advertising clips from an in-store reel to reel tape that was played within a Kmart store in 1974.  These were the days where the Kmart pharmacy was emerging and new. Tom Schwarzrock provided this very rare tape to me so that it could be added to the archive collection.  Based on a discussion with Tom, this reel was played on a secondary reel to reel player within the store, on top of the regular audio reel to reel soundtrack.  This tape was 45...

This is a digitized version of an in-store cassette tape that was played within a Kmart store. See the title of the file for the month and year. I worked at Kmart between 1989 and 1999 and held onto them with the hopes that they would be of use some day. Enjoy!
